What is The Roundtable for Writers and Other Creative Intellectuals?

It is an attempt to form a small and committed group of diligent people (over the age of 21) who are engaged in creative projects.

The founding of this group was inspired by the iconic gatherings, roundtables, and salons of writers and other creative intellectuals who enjoyed one another’s company and found that sharing ideas enhanced their individual work.

Who might benefit from membership? 

This group is appropriate for writers of literary fiction or creative non-fiction, visual artists, musicians, filmmakers and thespians who are actively and consistently engaged in creative projects. 

Academics and professionals who are genuinely pursuing creative asides might also wish to join.

Why would someone want to become a member?

Although creative endeavors are often executed in solitude, they can be nurtured through friendships with likeminded people.  Discussing ongoing work and sharing enthusiasms, inspirations, and insights fuels creativity.  And, interacting with people who are seriously working in creative fields can be just plain fun.

When will we meet?

For lunch, afternoon coffee/tea, or early happy hour repasts--usually (but not always) on weekdays.

Where will we meet?

We will regularly meet at a café or restaurant in the Del Mar-Carmel Valley area.  Intermittently we will also meet in other geographical locations throughout the county.

Please note: In the interest of fairness to the people who earn a living in the commercial establishments in which we meet, all participants must be willing to buy a refreshment and to tip the server.

How will meetings be conducted?

Since the purpose of this group is to discuss each member’s ongoing work and to share general enthusiasms, inspirations, and insights, it is expected that conversations will be conducted with goodwill, courtesy, and gentle humor. 

It is also taken as a given that everyone will contribute to the conversation and that no one will monopolize it; that each member will have an understanding of the depths and limitations of his/her own knowledge and opine accordingly; and that no member will have any pecuniary interest in participating.  

Finally, it is assumed that after sampling the group those who opt to become members will attend on a frequent basis.
